That's a huge leap - that misses by a mile, IMO.  The developer needs 
to know details of the _format_ of the map data.  The format does not 
necessarily tell one _anything_ about the _quality_ of a particular 
data set.

Iff the data format gives some clue about the quality of the data, then 
the developer may be expected to pass that along to the user in some 

What you just implied, Bob, is that if I create some horrendously 
inaccurate APRSdos map, then it is _your_ fault, as the APRSdos 
developer, for not telling the user...
